**EESG Maryland Ecosystem Trading Markets

Description:
Nicole F. Angeli will discuss Maryland Ecosystem Trading Markets, particularly the burgeoning Nitrogen and Phosphorus marketplace. The federally mandated Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for the Chesapeake Bay requires watershed states to comply with nutrient baselines outside projected technological and monetary capacities. A voluntary marketplace for agriculture and industrial facilities to reduce overall nutrient loads may incentivize further nutrient reductions due to cost differentials in Best Management Practices in the different sectors. Nicole will discuss the likelihood of participation by farmers in Maryland based on a 2011 assessment and Financial Companion Tool developed for MDA by herself, Michael Nakamoto (MBA'12), and Sameer Vaswani (MBA '12), and her personal experience consulting for farmers in Maryland over the past 9 months followed by recommendations for making a real impact in kick-starting Chesapeake Bay nutrient markets. {Will appear in FYI on Mar 28, 2012
